Start using Cardhop
Faster, smarter, and menu bar-ier
Although it’s a fairly powerful app on the Mac, Contacts isn’t particularly pleasant to use. By contrast, CardHop ($14.99, flexibits.com) is the Mac app equivalent of a loyal dog, always sitting patiently in the menu bar, desperately eager to please.
Cardhop’s natural language input makes it a cinch to add and edit contacts, or to perform actions like making a call or emailing someone. The Notes field is also front-and-center during searches, for when you need to recall your friend’s children’s names. That feature alone might be worth 15 bucks.
